D-rings make the best rings
At the gallery we sometimes receive artwork that has not been wired to hang. It makes us really sad, because we can't display work that we can't hang, despite the work being beautiful.
But it's quite simple to prepare your flat image for display: simple D-ring picture hangars and wire will do the job.And there are benefits to using D-ring hangars.
D-rings are available in most hardware stores, and are easy to install on your frame. Remember that large heavy frames will need larger, heavier D-rings with more holes in them to evenly distribute the weight.
Katherine Tyrrell has a great post on how to hang a picture.
The video below is a great tutorial.
